Drunken Boat is extending its deadline for the upcoming multigenre portfolio on Librotraficante and the New Latino Renaissance. The new deadline is June 7. Here is the call to artists:

In solidarity with the Librotraficante movement, sparked by Arizona’s HB2281 and the Tucson Unified School District’s resulting ban of Mexican American Studies, Drunken Boat seeks work by creators of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, spoken word, and experimental/mixed media that honors our country’s Latino heritage. The portfolio embraces quantum demographics, which, in the words of Librotraficante founder Tony Diaz, “pinpoint and celebrate the bridges that already exist between us.” Submissions will be considered through this lens of cultural intersection as it pertains to the New Latino Renaissance.

For those interested in the concept of quantum demographics, Nuestra Palabra has provided an extended definition.

The editors for the Librotraficante portfolio will be Drunken Boat’s nonfiction editor, Erin Wilcox, and contributing editor Lupe Mendez.
